Evening temp spike covered over a foot of dry pow in a nasty freezing rain crust last night. Fuuuuuck

I was going to head up to Steven's yesterday, but found out all the lots were full, and LONG waits for parking lot shuttles. Is Steven's always that packed? Or just a perfect storm of first non-holiday weekend, huge snowfall, and the next closest resort (Snoqualmie) being closed?

i'm usually on the road from seattle by 6:30, 7 at the latest. You want to be there around 8-8:30am to guarantee a spot. That is what you get on the first day the backside opens.

Report for the remainder of the week

Pacific Northwest: We just returned from Crystal Mountain who nabbed 25 inches of nearly blower pow last Sunday. Most of the PNW scored big time including Stevens Pass, Snowqualmie Pass, Alpental who all have opened up new terrain and are sitting at nearly mid winter conditions currently. The next systems come in from the south raising snow levels somewhat and will drop several feet of snow to many areas. We like Oregon the best currently especially Thursday PM and Friday AM where snow and wind will quickly rise avalanche danger (1-2 feet). The southern and central Washington Cascades will take our 2nd spot especially this weekend as additional moisture pushes up from Oregon (Crystal, Stevens, Interstate 90 could become players). My picks for the weekend could include any of the Oregon resorts and including most of southern or central Washington (Decently cold event with some warming). “Some areas will be very deep especially in the southern areas of the Pacific Northwest through the weekend.”
Thank you powderchasers, I will be there.

I had ridden all day Monday, went to work and watched the snow fall all night. I couldn't not go even though I was working again tues night. I did two cone laps, two chair laps and pretty much collapsed. Looking forward to Friday.
